  1. I’ve been having some discussions about doing a CCM residency at my institution after completing my residency. Everyone seems interested in me doing it. A few things would have to be altered such as my current residency would have to be extended 4 months (for a total of 22 months) to coincide with the start of the fellowship, which they also seem interest in doing. In exchange I would also get more elective time. I’d prefer this over doing locums so it would be a simple transition, but isn’t necessary. The CCM residency is a year long and pays about 7-10k more than I make now (which isn’t much lol), so in total I’ll have done just shy of 3 years post grad training. The talks are going that I would eventually split my time between CCM and EM like the docs with 6 shifts per month in the ED and 1 week per month in the unit. It would be more for management of the various ICU patients (rotate through Cvicu, micu, snicu, picu, and other areas) as I’ve already learned the majority of the procedures, though I would learn bronscopy and percutaneous trachs. Pros: I think it would just be cool to be, I think, the first formally dual trained EM-CCM and truly fellowship trained PA. it would be nice to have the variety of working CCM and EM. I have more GI bill to use to supplement my income, which pay about 1900 per month. it would help with my PSLF. The less I’m paid the less I pay them, and finding a non-profit to work for in EM with all the groups is hard. maybe could led to some consultancy work establishing residencies elsewhere? Or maybe speaking/lecturing/podcasts for EMRAP? Con: another year putting off settling down, renting a so so house, thoughts? Should I just go straight to work? Am I overinflating the pros?

  3. Hey - Looking for some advice. I'm a PA, 4 years out of school, 1 year NSG and 3 years ED experience, currently in the ED. Trying to get a better schedule as we work a ton of nights and weekends, also holidays and on-call. Staff is overwhelmed constantly - I love the nursing and other peeps but I'm getting to the point where I just can't take it anymore. Ive interviewed at a spine and also a multi-specialty ortho place. Pay is at least 10K less than what I'm making now but better schedule... both include OR/office and one day of call. Spine includes hospital rounding before and after clinic if applicable. Any advise in switching from ED to Ortho out there? I know the docs and certain things are different for everyone but... I'm worried just spine may be a little bit boring and underwhelming but the doc is cool and seems nice to work with. I'm so torn. Any advise or help would be appreciated.
  4. So apparently Nova Southeastern University is starting an online emergency medicine certificate program as an alternative to doing a residency. The program is 1 year long, and the inaugural class will start this Fall. It is 18 credits and tuition costs $10,800. One full weekend of onsite training is required. https://osteopathic.nova.edu/certificates/emergency-medicine-certificate.html What do you guys think? Obviously not as good as a real residency, but does it get a new grad significantly closer to an ER job? Is there a place for online "residencies"?
  5. Has anyone completed the EM fellowship at U of Missouri and are you willing to share your experiences?

  8. Hello all! I am a recent new grad who was offered a position in Trauma in SoCal. Though, I had never expected going into trauma, I am very excited for this opportunity and challenge!! Unfortunately I do not have much experience in ER, but the trauma surgeon really liked my personality so is willing to invest serious training. I am the first Truama PA at this hospital, so I do not really have a mentor to ask for tips from. Does anyone have any recommendations for resources, books, apps they used to best prepare for this role? Any other advice from fellow Trauma PAs out there?? Thanks in advance!! :)

    Duties on Rotations

    I have recently started a rotation at an ER. I am being asked to do lots of EKGs, transport patients to the floor, put them in gowns, getting blankets, helping them with bed pans and changing diapers. I'm not above these tasks, but I'm just not sure if this is the norm. I'm being assigned way more of these duties than getting to see patients or perform procedures. Has anyone else had a similar experience in an ER? TIA

  12. For those working in EM that have moved from a full-time hourly rate to a PRN hourly rate at the same facility and same position, what is a reasonable increase in pay to ask for? I've been there for about 5 years full time (also haven't had a raise in 3 years). I know what other EM PRN gigs pay in my area, but my question is specifically how much more to expect when transitioning in the same position. Thanks in advance!

  18. Any advice is appreciated. Has anyone attended CEP EM PA fellowship while having kids? I have a 2yo and will need to move to the fellowship without my husband and would like to take my daughter with me because my husband's job is not transferrable. I can afford a sitter, but I would like to know what the schedule is typically like (hrs per day, days per week, etc) . I haven't applied yet, but I'm just trying to figure out if it is logistically possible.
  19. Hello! I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. Thanks!

    EMCARE employees?

    Hello all, My current ER will be under the management of EmCare starting in a few months. I am curious if anyone here can inform me of the typical salaries and bonus structure they offer. I'm currently in the southeast. Thanks.
  21. Hi there! I recently graduated with a Bachelors in Biochemistry and Molecular Bio and I was pre-med. I'm taking 2-3 gap years to work/volunteer/shadow. I've shadowed before and have plenty of medical experience and I feel that I am most knowledgable about emergency medicine and immunology as those are the areas I've worked in. I'm looking for a PA to shadow (preferably in the ED) somewhere near Denver, CO. I would love to shadow evenings and/or weekends as I work Monday-Friday during the day.
  22. I thought I would start a new thread for this years cycle. Has anyone heard anything from this school yet?
  23. Sometime in the next year I will have an elective month in residency. I am very interested in doing an international rotation but only one PA resident in our program has done this so I don't have a lot of great ideas yet. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone has contacts or has had a good experience with a particular international organization. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  24. Wondering what the opinions of experienced providers are on the pros/cons of a new graduate taking a job in urgent care vs emergency medicine. Anyone care to share their thoughts? Feedback greatly appreciated.
  25. Has anyone been to this program? The website does not provide a lot of information. I e-mailed them for more information, but I would like to also hear from people who have been through the program. How was the experience? Did you receive a stipend? If not, are you able to work as a PA somewhere else while doing this program? I can't afford to not work for another year. Any other advice about this program I'd really appreciate as well. Thanks in advance!
